Twenty-two all-time favorite nursery rhymes with Ella encouraging group participation by cuing lyrics and activities while she sings. Titles include The Muffin Man, Hey Diddle Diddle, and Sing a Song of Sixpence. "[A] good variety of rhymes. Ms. Jenkins has a marvelous speaking voice; when reading rhymes or giving directions, she speaks to the children, not down to them." —Nancy Cooper, Music Educator
